Manchester City recorded their third straight win on Sunday against Sheffield United ay Bramall lane to maintain a perfect start of the season.
It was expected for Sheffield to fall behind City in terms of win probability but Paul Heckingbottom was proud of his side performance from kick off enduring the ever pressuring Pep Guardiola’s side.
The visitors though they had the lead when Nathan Ake netted from the build up in the 20th minute but his goal was disallowed for offside. Julian Alvarez had his cut back handled by John Egan earning them a penalty.

Last season top scorer Erling Haaland missed the penalty even after sending the goalkeeper the wrong way. The ball hit the post keeping the scores level at the break.
In the second half it was business as usual for Manchester City who had their effort rewarded when Jack Grealish had his cross converted by Haaland. The Norwegian could have easily doubled the lead but his goal was ruled offside.
An error from Kyle Walker awarded the host a glorious chance to equalize before Walker gathered himself up and set up a chance for Rodri who smashed the ball into the far lef corner of the net.
The results send Manchester City top of the table with nine points from three games and three wins.
